Asus has announced the launch of Asus Eee PC 1015P Seashell Series NetBook PC, which is powered by Intel Atom ULV processor and features 10.1-inch widescreen LED backlit display. The new ultra-portable seems to draws its inspiration from natural seashells and its glossy exterior is crafted by the innovative in-Mold Roller technology.
Weighing just 1.25 kgs with 6-cell battery pack, the new Asus Eee PC 1015P ultra-portable laptop is designed as low-cost, Internet-centric mobile computing devices also called NetBooks and is powered by 1.6 GHz Intel Atom PineView-M ULV (ultra low voltage) Processor N450 specifically designed for small devices and low power consumption, while maintaining the Intel Core 2 Duo instruction set compatibility.
The ultra low voltage consuming Intel Atom Pineview-M processor uses a brand new design structure that packs in 47 million transistors into a single chip sized at just 22mm (0.87 inches), and the processor uses just 2.5 watts of power which is less than 1/10th of the 35 watts used by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
The Atom processor N450 in Asus Eee 1015P netBook also includes a power-optimized front side bus of 533 MHz for faster data transfer on demanding mobile applications and a 512 KB L2 cache (which temporarily stores data).
This revolutionary new range of Ultra Portable Asus Eee PC is targeted at consumer who needs to stay connected, informed, entertained and productive-anytime and anywhere. The netBook is designed lightweight and small in size making it convenient for use at all sorts of places like in home, gym, trains, bus, planes etc. where a larger size laptop might feel inconvenient.
The Eee PC Seashell 1015P offers incredibly long battery life of 13.5 hour using ASUS-exclusive Super Hybrid Engine technology (SHE) that intelligently adapts and adjusts power settings to give you the CPU performance you need. Based on the user settings and the applications being run, the SHE tailors the appropriate power requirements for the task at hand to ensure maximum efficiency.
